No problem man! that mahogany you posted is freaking insane. I can't even begin to comprehend how the wood got the veiny turtle shell look. So unreal looking but so awesome.

Very high quality. Probably runs atleast $10,000. Koa is extremely rare (only harvested on the big island of Hawaii at certain elevations). I've heard from a video done by Taylor guitars that a Koa log costs the company $250,000.

Yeah 5,000 is prolly more accurate. But damn, 250k for a log. That's impressive.

LOL I think you may have come up with a new way to insult a girl Jim. Anyway, in other news, I won the Luna guitar off of ebay for like $400, will be getting it in about a month-ish? I'll let you guys know how it is.
